because people are afraid of death so they created "god", its an answer for the unknown and its more harmful than helpful. a countless number of lives have been lost due to an old outdated idea religion. unfortunately the people responsible were ignorant of general knowledge, the earth was flat, was the center of the universe, leeches were acceptable form of medical treatment, and slavery was a widely accepted practice and thats just a tiny fraction of info they didnt have. also if you dont believe as they do its pain and suffering for eternity, and that doesnt sound like a father or proud creator it sounds like a cowardly nut. im blaming parents for forcing there ideas on impressionable young minds who know no better and have very little choice weather to believe or not
In my belief God created everything. He created it perfect but He was not a dictator so He gave us free will to choose good or evil & to worship Him or not. When man chose sin : God sent His Son to cover our sin. God is Holy so He is forced to judge sin. He sent Jesus. I worship God & Jesus. Jesus left such a impression on mankind that we speak His name daily. "Of all the armies that ever marched ; all the parliments that ever Met ; & all the kings that ever ruled ; Have not affected the life of man on the earth as much as that One Solitary Life".
Ikr? If you read the bible carefully you see he is worse than comic book villains but like comic book villains he has the ability to make people think he is not bad and in this case worship him. So like mister sinister- mind control.
I believe in God because he gave us a chance and created Jesus to die on the cross for us so we don't go to Hell. And those non believers out their that say their is not a God, and the world started by a Big Bang, who created the Big Bang? That's right God did.
Romans 1:20, "For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world?s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable." God has given us everything, we owe our lives to him. The least we can do is be appreciative and worship him.
